Tribute Pours To Tuffy Quinonez death

Tuffy Quinonez had smiling Irish eyes and an unmistakable joie de vivre, to borrow expressions from two cultures that as far as I know weren’t his. He greeted me often with the phrase, “Everything’s going good.” (I was never entirely sure if that was a question to me or an anticipation of me asking about his general well-being.) Tuffy thoroughly enjoyed serving the people of the 11th Ward, and he relished the transactional nature of politics that other public officeholders merely tolerate. He was a man of his word; if Tuffy promised you his support, you could count on him. I’ll miss Tuffy’s presence on the City Council floor every week, not to mention meeting him “for a cold one” when he had issues he wanted to discuss. I imagine that all of us who served with Ald. Quinonez are feeling very sad and a little empty right now.
